My friend and colleague Jennifer Lee (author of the Right-Brain Business Plan) is opening the doors again to her program Color Outside the Lines which caters directly to your needs as a creative Asian woman.
This is an amazing opportunity to gather in community with folks who innately understand the specific challenges you face.
Join Jenn if you’re ready to rock the boat and live, work, and lead from your most authentic, fully-expressed selves that include all the parts of you!

If you’re new to Jenn and her work, you can catch the replay of a mini-workshop she recently led for creative Asians entitled Embracing our Emotions here.
In the context of what has been happening in the US and globally in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd, I want to be clear about what I stand for as a human, a coach, a facilitator, and the leader of my community.
This message is long overdue. I’ve been wanting to send it weeks ago. Besides supporting kickass clients, I just wrapped up a time-sensitive and very important project. This is why I’ve been quiet lately. I’ve also been immersed in my own education as a white woman so that I can support the emergence of a just and inclusive society worldwide.
I stand 100% behind “Black Lives Matter.” This is my stance as a person, as a business owner, and as a coach.
As a white woman and as a business owner, I’m committed to doing my own work to:
unpack my own unconscious biases and blind spots around white supremacy and white privilege. If you think you don’t have some, think twice, especially if you identify as white. We all have some. (see resources below)
contribute to creating a safe and equitable space in my community and in the world for my sisters and brothers of color to thrive.
Here are a few resources that I’ve found eye-opening:
Podcast Seeing White – How the social construct of race and whiteness came about in the world (Europe first) and how it evolved in the US. HIGHLY recommended.
Some of these resources apply to the US specifically, but not all. The false ideology of white supremacy and white centering is pervasive everywhere in the world. This is the water we swim in; we don’t see it, especially if we identify as white.
There are many more resources, but these are some that I’ve found most helpful so far. Let me know which ones have been helpful to you.
For a world where… ….we can all thrive physically, financially, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually ….and be free to express our gifts and do the work we love whatever the color of our skin.
I want to introduce you to my colleague, Jessica Denise Dickson, who is offering supportive connection sessions for women of color.
If you are a woman of color, I highly recommend you check them out. See more information below.
If you are not a woman of color, please share broadly to the women of color in your network who could benefit from it. This is a wonderful way to be of support and elevate the voices of our sisters and brothers of color.
If you are a woman of color:
Joining one of these sessions is an opportunity to be in a supportive community with other women of color,find rest for your soul, and be the most authentic version of yourself.
I’ve experienced personally the powerful loving presence and talent of Jessica, and I know the women in these sessions are in for a treat. Her fierce love will hold you no matter what. I highly recommend you check them out.
